Hi writing an USB Wacom tablet driver and as such I'm looking for testers.
Currently it was successfully tested on:
- Bamboo MTE-450A
- Graphire ET-405-U
- Volito FT-405-U
- Bamboo Fun CTE-450
- Bamboo One CTF-430

I'm looking for other tablets, if you are interested contact me by email with your product name and model number (as above) if you can extract your USB product ID from USB.log if would be even better).

EDIT: updated list of successfully tested tablets, still looking for Intuos and Cintiq...

Interesting drivers, because with your work and the Skeetchblock perfect pack.

Cintiq is abit more than a tablet

Definetley wish I had one of those to test.

In case you don't know it's ascreen that you draw on directly as opposed to a seperate tablet. They cost an absolute fortune!

Yep that's true, but we don't know, maybe we still have some gfx professional among us...
Yes they have a cost, but for a professional tool that's not so high (it's not more than a high end Gibson for example ;)

The best one you can afford.

By that I mean SketchBlock simply supports any tablet whos driver sends NEWTABLET events.

So if you have a lower budget a UCLogic based one using my driver will work great (that's what I have)

Omce abalabans driver is out and if you've got a little more to spare then get a wacom bamboo. A bit more yet get an wacom intuitos.

Currently Sketchblock only uses position and pressure, it doesn't make use of tilt (no suitable tool written yet)

@Andy

My driver already generates tilt information for supporting tablets (IIRC it's only Intuos). But it's untested yet because no one with such a tablet contacted me (I only found Seblam but it's very hard to contact and does not seems to answer emails either).

And here in France you can find used Wacom tablets for less than 20 euros (for example my Wacom Bamboo (old one) cost me 15 euros with original box and complete content).
Of course Intuos are a bit more expensive (even used) but you can find one starting from 100 euros here. I even saw a Cintiq 12" for 550 euros.

Those are good prices looking on UK ebay a couple of intuitos show up below £150 but thry haven't finished bidding yet....

Good to know that tilt is implemented, hopefully at some point we'll make use of it!

Obviously a "Net up" tablet isn't a "Wacom" tablet, so my Wacom driver won't work with your tablet, sorry. Also I can't find anywhere information about your tablet, does it work under Linux? If yes do you know which driver is used?

OK just today picked a Wacom Bamboo Connect (CTL470)that I hope I can get working with Sketchblock

well I just took my Bamboo connect tablet out of the box and plugged her into my X1000 and loaded up Sketchblock and it just works great right out of the box
I thought I would have to mess with drivers, settings etc. but alas true plug & play on my miggy! I'm off to update my USB device list under OS4.1

thanks again broadblues & abalaban !

That appears to be an ACECAD Flair tablet. There is Linux source out there for this tablet. Have no idea how close it is to Wacom.

I'm finishing the driver preferences saving/loading part the I'll release the first public version. Due to personal reasons I can't work on it this week, but I have high hopes that I'll be able to work on it this week-end and probably at the beginning of next week I'll be able to release it.
Currently the remaining work required to reckon it really finished (feature wise) is adding possibility to configure non-mouse related function to tablet buttons (running exe, launching scripts, adding qualifiers, etc.). First I wanted this to be present in the first public version but real-life took over and I prefer releasing one version now and another later.

EDIT:
@328gts
Wacom tablets identify themselves as HID devices by default, which means that even without any driver you would be able to use it as if it were a mouse. However with a proper driver (like the one I'm working on) you'll be able to use pressure control, and use all buttons on the tablet and the stylus. If one day AmigaOS4 supports multi-tools my driver will be able to send this information too.

What is "multi-tools" ?

Some tablets can have several styli (with different pressure, width etc.). Some supports wireless mouse too. And more commonly most styli have a "rubber" end at the nib opposite end.

My driver can identify this and can send this information in the tablet even using a new tag... So user application interested in this information can distinguish between all of them.

@All

The first public version of my Wacom driver is now out on OS4Depot. This version already supports sending tools information in the tablet event, interested application developper should look at the readme for more information on how they can detect it.

I can confirm that the driver works fine on my Bamboo Connect Model: CTL-470 except for the eraser at the end of the pen.

many thanks for bringing this driver to my favourite OS
